Audi R8 V10 Coupe Final Japan Edition: Goodbye.

The Last 8: Goodbye to a Beloved Icon in Japan

Saying goodbye with a show of affection, Audi is bidding farewell to the Japanese market with the distinctive R8 Coupe Japan Final Edition. As the part of this exclusive edition, this particular R8 will wear a unique paint scheme and be produced in limited numbers.

As the Audi R8 bids its final farewell in Japan, the exterior is gracefully adorned with a distinguished matte Ibis White paint job and a notable set of 20-inch five-spoke Audi Sport aluminum wheels with bewitching glossy red calipers for the ceramic brakes – an homage to the customary Japanese tricolour of red, white, and gold.

Conversely, the mirror housings, front lip spoiler, side panels, side sills, tail wing, and back diffuser are all crafted from carbon fiber. The R8 symbols and the four-ring insignia are both tinted in black.

Inside the Japan-exclusive R8, the cabin is designed with a two-tone black and Alabaster White theme. The sports seats are upholstered with black Nappa leather and feature white diamond stitching, while the headliner and trunk liner are made of Alcantara. The steering wheel has four satellite multifunction buttons and a dedicated switch for engine sound. As a special touch, the door sill has a serialized “Japan Final Edition” commemorative inscription.

Acquirers of the Audi R8 Coupe Japan Final Edition will be presented with a VIN Artwork depicting their ride – an offer formerly restricted only to those in Europe – along with a frame containing the car’s chassis number.

Found tucked away beneath the seats is the adults-only 5.2-liter V10, developed especially for the Audi R8; this one’s renowned for boasts a noteworthy 612 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque. It links up to a seven-speed S tronic transmission that sends torque to all four wheels via Audi’s acclaimed Quattro technology. Furthermore, the vehicle features a magnetic ride system as its suspension setup.

The Japanese Final Edition of the Audi R8 Coupe has an extraordinarily limited production, of only 8 units; sold at a cost of 35,080,000 yen (which makes about $246,000 currently). Even scarcer than the extremely rare TT Variant available in Spain, both coupes will soon generate into electrified models, more than likely within the subsequent two years.
